Brazilian slab export prices stable but optimism remains

Export prices for Brazil-origin slab have gone unchanged this week, with no volumes being booked, but there is still positive price sentiment among market participants.

Metal Bulletin’s weekly assessment of Brazil’s export slab prices was $580-590 per tonne fob on Thursday March 29, stable from the previous week.
No offers were made because mills have not started booking June-shipment material yet, and all available material for May shipment has already been sold.

Sources expect new offers...
